The New Temple

Good morning, beloved friends and brethren present, and viewers in the different Latin American and Caribbean countries, and in North America.

May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, be upon each one of you and upon me also, and may He open our understanding in order to understand His Word relevant to this end time, and speak to us through His Word, on this occasion, all the things that we need to understand in this Last Day. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.

On this occasion I want to read in Matthew, chapter 24, verses 1 to 3, where it says:

“And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.

And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”

Our topic for this occasion is: “THE NEW TEMPLE.” That is our subject for this occasion.

On this occasion when Jesus is with His disciples in Jerusalem, they show Jesus the temple buildings, and He says to them:

“See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”

In other words, here Jesus Christ is prophesying of the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem, and also on other occasions He prophesied about the destruction of Jerusalem.

For example, in Luke, chapter 19, verses 41 to 44, on Palm Sunday or the day Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey, it says chapter 19, verse 41 to 44, of Luke:

“And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it,

Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.

For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side,

And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knewest not the time of thy visitation.”

Here Jesus also prophesies about the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple; and in the year 70 the Roman general Titus entered Jerusalem and destroyed it, and destroyed the temple, after having surrounded it for about two years. We find that this Roman general fulfilled the prophecies that Jesus Christ had given concerning the city of Jerusalem and also the temple there in Jerusalem.

Now, see how in order to fulfill the divine judgments that God spoke over the land of Israel, and over Jerusalem and the temple, a man appeared who fulfilled that promise: Roman general Titus; without realizing it, he fulfilled what had been prophesied by our Lord Jesus Christ.

And now, we find that the temple of Jerusalem was destroyed, many people were taken captive and others were scattered to different nations; and the Hebrew people entered into a very difficult situation, in which they were persecuted and went to different nations to escape the divine judgment that was falling upon the Hebrew people. And in different generations, from those times until this end time, we find the Hebrew people going through a terrible persecution, a terrible tribulation, of which Christ tells us that if He hadn’t shortened those days no flesh would be saved.1

Now, see how that persecution that came upon the Hebrew people, Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin almost destroyed the Hebrew people; but because God had made a promise for the Hebrew people, that in the seventieth week God would confirm the Covenant to the Hebrew people…; only the first part of the seventieth week had been fulfilled under the ministry of Jesus Christ, and the second part of the seventieth week was missing (for the Hebrew people), which is three and a half years; just as Christ had three and a half years to have His ministry in the midst of the Hebrew people, confirming the Covenant to the Hebrew people.

Now, see how, because God has made promises for the Hebrew people, He has made promises to Abraham, the Hebrew people can’t be totally destroyed; although different difficult stages have come to them, in which they were almost extirpated from planet Earth; but see how God has protected the Hebrew people, because God has made promises for the Hebrew people.

And for the end time God will fully restore the Hebrew people, and will restore the Kingdom of David in the midst of the Hebrew people; and the Throne of David will be occupied by the Messiah in the midst of the Hebrew people, who for the end time will go to the Hebrew people and will confirm the Covenant to the Hebrew people in the second part of the seventieth week.

And after those three and a half years, in which the gentile kingdoms will be going through the great tribulation and the divine judgments will be falling upon the kingdom of the gentiles, after that time the glorious Millennial Kingdom of Christ will begin on this planet Earth, in the midst of the Hebrew people; and our Lord Jesus Christ will reign over the Hebrew people and over the entire planet Earth.

Now, see how the promise of the Throne of David —for the Messiah to reign over the Hebrew people— corresponds to Christ, the Messiah. And for the end time is that this Throne will be restored in the midst of the Hebrew people; and the Messiah-Prince will reign over the Hebrew people and over the entire planet Earth.

Now, the Hebrew people have been going through these difficult stages of persecutions, because they rejected the Messiah in His First Coming and asked for His death, and said: “His Blood be upon us and upon our children”2; and God has been demanding the Blood of Christ from the hands of the Hebrew people, because they asked for the death of Christ.

In other words, the one who planned the death of Christ was the Hebrew people; in other words, the crime committed in the time of Jesus, upon the person of Jesus, by the Romans, the one who committed that crime intellectually was the Hebrew people; therefore, they are guilty of the crime committed against Jesus, and the Blood of Christ has been being demanded upon the Hebrew people; and divine judgments have partially fallen upon the gentiles; but the judgments of the great tribulation will fall upon the kingdom of the gentiles, because the kingdom of the gentiles was the one that crucified Christ, the Roman empire, the empire of the gentiles, which was on the legs of iron.

And for the time of the end we find that it will be in the feet of iron and clay, and that is where the divine judgment will fall in all its fullness upon the kingdom of the gentiles; and the Blood of Christ shed on Calvary’s Cross will be avenged, it will be demanded and will be avenged by the hand of the kingdom of the gentiles, which will be in the stage of the feet of iron and clay.

In the days when Jesus Christ was here on Earth (two thousand years ago) the kingdom of the gentiles was in the stage of the legs of iron, which was the Roman empire. And now, for the end time, for the Last Day, it will be in the feet of iron and clay, where the divine judgment will fall upon the kingdom of the gentiles.

Now, we find that the divine judgment has been falling upon the Hebrew people, and the city of Jerusalem was destroyed in the year 70, and also the temple was destroyed; and where the temple of Jerusalem was, the mosque of Omar was built, which is a temple of the gentiles which remains there, it was built hundreds of years later. But you see, the Hebrew people haven’t been able to build another temple there in Jerusalem, in the place that God designated for the construction of the temple.

And now, the Hebrew people have been without a temple; and therefore, they have been without the sacrifice of atonement and without the corresponding sacrifices for their sins to be covered, and also to have peace with God, to be reconciled with God, as they were reconciled on the day of atonement, on the tenth day of the seventh month, when the goat was sacrificed and the blood was brought into the most holy place, and placed on the mercy seat, where the presence of God was; and the Hebrew people were reconciled to God every year, so that the divine judgment wouldn’t fall upon the Hebrew people, but the blessing of God would come upon the Hebrew people.

But since they haven’t had a temple: They haven’t had a place to take the blood of the atonement of the goat; and therefore, the divine judgment has been upon the Hebrew people, because they haven’t been reconciled with God. And that is why they (the Hebrew people) have had so much trouble during these two thousand years that have passed.

But you see, the Hebrew people have already been returning to their land, but they don’t have a temple yet, because the mosque of Omar is there. They hope that with the coming of the Messiah the temple will be restored in Jerusalem.

But you see, when Christ spoke of the destruction of the temple that was in Jerusalem, He was also implying that a new temple would come; and that New Temple is the one we need to know, to enter that Temple and be reconciled with God, and receive the blessings of God, and see the manifestation of God in His Temple, in each one of the stages of the Divine Program.

Now, which is the new temple of God? Because the temple that was in Jerusalem was destroyed.

We find that when the Hebrew people had the tabernacle that Moses raised, there God was manifested in His temple; and when Solomon built the temple, he placed the ark of the covenant that was in the tabernacle that Moses had raised, and placed (inside that temple that Solomon raised) the ark of the covenant, and placed the ark of the covenant in the most holy place, and also placed there two giant cherubim, made of olive wood, covered with gold.

And notice, when the Hebrew people no longer had the tabernacle of Moses, they had the temple of Solomon; and when the temple of Solomon was destroyed, then later on they had a new temple, which was a temple that came as the restoration of the temple of Solomon. In other words, a new temple: every time it was destroyed, then, later on, there came a restoration of the temple in the place where Solomon’s temple had been; and that was a new temple every time it was restored, but it was in the same place.

And now, we need the new temple that goes after the temple that was destroyed in the year 70 by the Roman emperor (who later became an emperor, but first was the Roman general Titus).

And now, we find that the new temple that would be built would be built by the Messiah; and the hope of the Hebrew people, that the Messiah will build the new temple, is about to be fulfilled in all its fullness; because the Messiah has been building a temple, but this temple is a Temple with human beings and of human beings, called the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

That is the New Temple, which the Messiah would build, for the dwelling of God in Holy Spirit in all His fullness; and it was typified in the restoration of the temple carried out by Prince Zerubbabel,3 descendant of King David.

And Christ, as a descendant of King David, builds the New Temple, called in the New Testament: The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

That is why Saint Paul, speaking to us of this New Temple, tells us in his letter to the Ephesians, chapter 2 and verses 19 and on:

“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord (here we have the New Temple):

In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”

Here we have the New Temple, which Jesus Christ has been building from age to age. This New Temple was represented or symbolized in the tabernacle built by Moses and in the temple built by King Solomon.

The temple in Jerusalem was always representing a New Temple to come, which would be made with human beings, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Just as every human being is a temple, and has the same parts as the tabernacle that Moses built and the temple that King Solomon built.

The tabernacle that Moses built and the temple that Solomon built had the outer court, the holy place and the most holy place. And the human being as an individual has: an outer court, which is the body; he has a holy place, which is the spirit; and he has a most holy place, which is the soul.

Now notice, also the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ as a Temple has an Outer Court, has a Holy Place and has a Most Holy Place. The Outer Court corresponds to the time from Adam until Christ; and the Holy Place corresponds to the ages of the gentile Church, including the time of the apostles; and the Most Holy Place corresponds to the Age of the Cornerstone.

Now notice how the Holy Place corresponds to the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church, together with the time of the apostles; and the Most Holy Place corresponds to the Age of the Cornerstone.

And this Temple has been being built with human beings; and that is why when Christ died on Calvary’s Cross, all those people who had sacrificed the little animals for sin, their sins had been covered with the blood of those little animals and those who had already died were living in Paradise; and when Christ died on Calvary’s Cross and shed His precious Blood, the sins of all those people who had died and were living in Paradise…, who had offered to God a sacrifice for sin, a little animal, which was type and figure of Christ dying on Calvary’s Cross, were type and figure (all those sacrifices of the Hebrew people) of the Sacrifice of Christ on Calvary’s Cross.

Now, notice, when Christ died on Calvary’s Cross and shed His Blood, the sins of those people…, who were covered with the blood of those little animals, because the blood of the animals doesn’t take away sin but covered them before the presence of God; but when Christ died: the sins of all those people who were in Paradise, who had believed in the sacrifice of those little animals, as a type and figure of the Messiah in His Coming, were taken away.

And now, those people were made perfect when Christ died on Calvary’s Cross. And for that reason, when Christ died and then resurrected on the third day (He resurrected on Sunday morning), the Old Testament saints were resurrected with Him, and the Scripture says that they appeared to many people in the city of Jerusalem. That is in Matthew, chapter 27, verses 51 and on, where it says:

“And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

And came out of the graves after his resurrection (When did they come out of the graves? After Christ’s resurrection), and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.”

Also, when Christ resurrected He appeared to many people; the Scripture tells us that He appeared to more than 500 people, who saw Him ascend to Heaven when He went to Heaven to go to the Place of Intercession in Heaven.

In First Corinthians, chapter 15, verse 6, it tells us that He appeared to many people. Let’s see, it says [verse 1]:

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;

By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, (and) unless ye have believed in vain.

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, (that is, Peter) then of the twelve:

After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.

After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.

And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.

For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.”

Thus says Saint Paul in First Corinthians, chapter 15, verse 1 to 11.

Now notice how Christ appeared after His resurrection to more than 500 people, according to what the apostle Saint Paul tells us in this passage.

And notice, the Old Testament saints also resurrected and appeared to many people, who were made perfect; in other words, they were resurrected in eternal bodies; and when Christ ascended to Heaven they went with Christ to Heaven.

And notice how these Old Testament saints are the people who were in the Outer Court, and the outer court is the place of sacrifices; and that is the Outer Court of the House of God, of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

And now, notice, then we have the Holy Place, which corresponds to the time of the Sacrifice of Christ until now, where all the sons and daughters of God that correspond to the Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Jesus Christ have been called and gathered; this Temple of which the apostle Saint Paul also speaks to us, in Hebrews, chapter 3, verses 5 to 6, where it says:

“And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;

But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.”

Now, notice what is the House of God, the Temple of God, Saint Paul says: “But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we…”

The House of God is His Church, the House of God are the sons and daughters of God, who belong to the Mystical Body of Christ; and… the House of God is the offspring of God, the sons and daughters of God, who compose the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Notice, with sons and daughters God is building the Holy Place and the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple.

And now we can see how this House of God, the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, this New Temple, has been being built from age to age, and we are already in the end time.

Now, notice how Christ, from age to age, during the Dispensation of Grace has been in the Holy Place building that part of the Holy Place; and through each angel messenger sent in each age has been calling and gathering His elect of each age, and thus building the Holy Place of that Temple of God, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

And now, notice how Christ has passed from one age to another by means of the manifestation of Christ in Holy Spirit through the messenger of each age; and thus He has also passed from one nation to another and from one continent to another. He has passed from one nation to another and from one continent to another, and from one age to another, how has He passed? He has passed in the messenger that God has sent for a new age and a new territory.

And Christ has moved from one age to another, from one messenger to another, and from one territory to another territory; and that has been nothing less than the seven spirits of God that travel throughout the Earth, which is the manifestation of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit through each angel messenger that He has sent to His Church during the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church.

Eyes also in the Bible represent prophets; and these seven spirits of God, which are the seven manifestations of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit in His Church during the Dispensation of Grace and during the seven ages of the gentile Church, we find that they have been the seven manifestations of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit in each of these prophets that He has sent, of these messengers that He has sent during the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church. It has been nothing less than the manifestation of the seven eyes of God that travel all over the Earth:4 through Asia Minor, Europe and North America.

In Asia Minor He sent Saint Paul, there we have the manifestation of the first of the eyes of God, the manifestation of the Spirit of God in Saint Paul.

Then we have the manifestation of five eyes; of the seven eyes, five eyes manifested in Europe, which were the manifestations of the Holy Spirit, of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit, in five messengers that He sent to the European territory, which were the messengers of five ages that were fulfilled in Europe, at different times.

And then from there He moves… then there He moves from nation to nation, from territory to territory in Europe, and from age to age; and He calls and gathers the elect of each age in the construction of His Temple, His spiritual Temple, the New Temple that Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit is building by means of His manifestation through those messengers of each age and of each dispensation.

Now, we find that after those five manifestations in Europe, Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit comes to North America, and Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit manifests in North America; He comes in the messenger of the seventh age of the gentile Church: Reverend William Branham, and through him Jesus Christ is manifested in the seventh stage or age of the gentile Church; and there we have the seventh eye of God manifested, the seventh spirit of God manifested, in other words, the seventh manifestation of the Holy Spirit, of the seven manifestations that He would have in the Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, in the construction of the Holy Place of His spiritual Temple.

And now, notice how He has passed through each angel messenger from one age to another, and from one territory to another, and from one Message to another Message; in other words, He has passed with a new Message to a new age and a new dispensation; and with a new people, notice, He has been manifested always from age to age; and with a new messenger.

And after He has gone through those seven stages of the gentile Church through those seven territories: Asia Minor, Europe and North America, where there were seven territories where those ages were fulfilled, now He has passed to Latin America and the Caribbean for the fulfillment of the Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Age of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, to call and gather His elect of the end time; because the Scripture says, Jesus says [Matthew 24:31]:

“And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect…”

It is for this end time where Christ, through His end time manifestation, calls and gathers His elect in the Age of the Cornerstone, in other words, in the Age of the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, in the construction of His spiritual Temple; He calls them and gathers them to build that Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple.

And when the number of the elect of God is completed: The construction of the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ will be completed, and the Temple, the New Temple will be finished, and it will be filled with the fullness of the Spirit of God; as the tabernacle of Moses was filled with the Spirit of God when it was raised and dedicated to God by Moses, and as the temple that Solomon built was filled with the Spirit of God, when it was finished and dedicated to God.

And for the Last Day, the New Temple, which from age to age has had the first fruits of the Spirit; for the Last Day, when the work of building the Most Holy Place of that spiritual Temple is finished, it will be filled with the fullness of God: The dead in Christ will be resurrected in eternal bodies and we who are alive will be transformed; and there we will have the New Temple filled with the fullness of God in the Last Day, which will be seen by the Hebrew people and they will recognize that God is in that Temple composed of human beings, called the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

And it is in that Temple where the greater manifestations of God, which He has promised to carry out in the Last Day, will be seen.

And the Hebrew people will see God manifested in all His fullness through human flesh in His spiritual Temple, in the New Temple, they will see Him manifested in the Most Holy Place, and they will say: “This is the one we are waiting for!” They will see Him in the New Temple manifested.

And from the Most Holy Place of the New Temple will come forth the Voice of God, the Message of God, the Message of the Gospel of the Kingdom for the Hebrew people; and there will also come forth the signs and wonders that the Hebrew people need to see in the Last Day, to realize that God is in a New Temple called the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Now notice THE MYSTERY OF THE NEW TEMPLE.

This New Temple is being built from age to age through the Work of Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit: By people believing in Jesus Christ as their Savior and thus receiving the forgiveness of their sins, and washing their sins in the Blood of Christ, and then receiving the Holy Spirit, and thus entering into the Mystical Body of Christ, that is, into this New Temple composed of human beings.

It is through the new birth that we enter this Mystical Body of believers, this spiritual Temple, this New Temple. Christ speaking of this new birth said to Nicodemus: “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he can’t see the Kingdom of God,” that is, he can’t understand It.

Nicodemus was very interested in the Kingdom of God and asked Christ… Chapter 3 of John, verse 1 onwards, we have the story of this moment when Nicodemus met Christ. And now, reading from verse 3 onwards, it says:

“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.”

Here, notice how Christ speaks to Nicodemus about the new birth. In John, chapter 1, verse 11 to 13, it says:

“He came unto his own, and his own received him not (in other words, the Hebrew people).

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.”

Now notice how these people who receive the power to be made sons and daughters of God, it is through the Spirit of God that they obtain that new birth and are born as sons and daughters of God.

When we were born on this planet Earth through mom and dad we were not born as sons or daughters of God; we were born as human beings in this kingdom of the world. But when we have received Christ as our Savior, and we have washed away our sins in the Blood of Christ, and we have received His Holy Spirit: We have been born again and we have been born as sons or daughters of God.

Sons and daughters of God, born where? In the Kingdom of God, being born in the Mystical Body of Christ, being born in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, by believing in Christ as our Savior, washing our sins in the Blood of Christ and receiving His Holy Spirit; and that is how we have been born again and have obtained a theophanic body of the sixth dimension, in other words, a theophanic spirit of the sixth dimension, which is called in the Bible “the Angel of the Lord who encamps around those who fear Him and defends them.”5

The early Church had knowledge of this angel. When Peter was in prison and was the deliverer by the Angel of God, he came to the house where those who were praying for him were gathered, where the Church was praying for him, and knocked on the door; and a young woman named Rhoda went to the door and realized that it was Peter (surely she opened a little window like the ones they have in some nations in the door so as not to open the door completely); and she saw that it was Peter and returned to the group that was praying for him there in the house, and says: “It is Peter!” They say to her: “It’s not Peter, it’s his angel.” They thought that they had already killed him and that now Peter was in his angel, in his theophanic body, visiting them; but Peter was in his body of flesh, which had been released from prison by the Angel of God.6

And now, notice how the early Church had knowledge of the angel that every son and daughter of God receives, has, which is his theophanic body, when he has believed in Christ as his Savior, has washed his sins in the Blood of Christ and has received His Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

Now we can see this great mystery of the angel that each person has; which is called by Saint Paul the apostle “a building not made with hands.” He says that if our earthly body should fall apart, we have a building not made with hands7; that is the theophanic body to which we go: When the person finishes his days in this earthly body, the person goes to live in Heaven in that theophanic body that he has received when he received the Spirit of Christ.

And now, notice how those who have already departed are in that theophanic body living in Paradise; a body that is similar to our body, but of another dimension.

And now, we can see that Jesus Christ also said that the angels of these little ones (speaking of His children), represented in the disciples of Jesus Christ as well as in the children, He says: “His angels see the face of My Father every day,”8 speaking of His angels, of their theophanic bodies that all the sons and daughters of God have.

Now, we can see that the new birth is required, which from the Day of Pentecost onwards has been being carried out in every person who has his name written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Christ spoke of the Coming of the Holy Spirit; and also the prophet forerunner of the First Coming of Christ spoke of the Holy Spirit, and said that He would come upon all believers and followers of Christ, of the Messiah. It says in Matthew, chapter 3, verse 11:

“I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire…”

Who is the one who will baptize in Holy Spirit and Fire? The Lord Jesus Christ, the one who would come after John the Baptist.

And now, notice why John’s followers who didn’t follow Jesus couldn’t receive the Holy Spirit, and therefore, couldn’t receive the new birth, and therefore, were not part of the Mystical Body of Christ; until later they received Christ as their Savior, and then they received the Spirit of Christ, and became part of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. Because in order to be part of the Church of Jesus Christ one has to be a believer and follower of our Lord Jesus Christ, and one has to believe in Him as our Savior, wash our sins in the Blood of Christ and receive His Holy Spirit.

And that is how we have become part of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, of this Mystical Body of believers, which is the New Temple that would be built by the Messiah-Prince, by Jesus Christ our Savior.

Notice how Christ speaking of the Holy Spirit and His Coming, He said in John, chapter 14, verse 26, it says:

“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

Now notice how Christ here promises the Coming of the Holy Spirit and says that He will come in His Name, He will come in the Name of Jesus Christ.

In John, chapter 15, verse 26, also speaks of the Comforter, and it says as follows:

“But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.”

“For ye have been with me (since when?), ye have been with me from the beginning.”

And in John, chapter 16, verse 12 onwards, it says:

“I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.”

Now, notice how Christ here also promises the Coming of the Comforter, the Coming of the Holy Spirit, and says that He will teach us all things that will come to pass.

And now we can see the promise of the Coming of the Holy Spirit for all believers in Jesus Christ who have washed their sins in the Blood of Jesus Christ, so that they may be born again, receive the Spirit of Christ and be born again, born into the Mystical Body of Christ and become part of this New Temple that Jesus Christ has been building.

He has been building a New Temple, which is a new race that He has been creating stage by stage. That is why in Revelation, chapter 3, verse 14, God tells us there as follows:

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God…”

Who is the beginning of God’s Creation? He is Jesus Christ. He is the beginning of God’s Creation, He is the beginning of this New Creation that God has been carrying out, called the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

That is why He is the head of His Church, He is the first of this new race. He is the perfect man who has come to Earth, and He has said: “Before Abraham was, I am. And Abraham desired to notice my day, he saw it and was glad.”9

He is before Abraham, He is before Adam also. John the Baptist said: “He is before me.”10 So He was before John, He was before Abraham and He was before Adam also.

And now, notice how Jesus Christ being before John and before Abraham and before Adam, this refers to Jesus Christ in His theophanic body, in that theophanic body of the sixth dimension. He was in this theophanic body before Adam and before anyone else, because He is the beginning of God’s Creation.

God created Himself a theophanic body called the Word. In John, chapter 1, verse 1 to 18, where it says:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.”

John, chapter 1, verse 1 to 3, says:

“All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

He is the one who created the Heavens and the Earth, as it says in Genesis, chapter 1, verse 1: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”

And who was it that created the Heavens and the Earth? The Word that was with God and the Word that was God. In other words, it was God in His theophanic body: a theophanic body that is similar to our body, but of another dimension.

So the one who created the Heavens and the Earth is nothing less than a man of the sixth dimension, He is the first man of the sixth dimension, He is the first man that was created, but from another dimension. And that man was created by God, that theophanic body of the seventh dimension.

And do you know who was inside that body, that man? God. It was none other than God’s theophanic body of the sixth dimension.

Then we find that later on, after creating the Heavens and the Earth, He created the human being, Adam; He created him first in the sixth dimension, He created him a theophanic body also, where He placed Adam’s soul, and there Adam was fraternizing with God in his theophanic body. And then God created a body of flesh for Adam, from the dust of the earth; but God had not yet created a body of flesh for Himself.

But God later created a body of flesh called Jesus: He created a body of flesh in Mary’s womb, created a cell of life, which multiplied cell upon cell, and formed, created the body of Jesus, which was born in Bethlehem of Judea about two thousand years ago. And that body that was born in Bethlehem of Judea is the body of flesh of God for the Coming of the Angel of the Covenant, the Angel of the Lord, the Word made flesh, the Word coming in human flesh.

John says, chapter 1, verse 14: “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.” When the Word became flesh, when God became flesh with His theophanic body, He was known by the name of Jesus, who was born in Bethlehem of Judea.

So Jesus is the body of flesh that God created Himself to visit the human race, which was fallen, to visit the Hebrew people and to carry out His Work of Redemption on Calvary’s Cross, and to create a new race.

Because Adam’s descendant race is fallen; and the restoration of the human being is the restoration of the Temple of God, of the New Temple, because the human being is a temple for God.

But Adam being a temple for God, it was destroyed: Adam fell, and consequently, the human race fell; and consequently, the temple of God to dwell in all His fullness was destroyed; and it is restored in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is the New Temple; that New Temple created, built by Jesus Christ, which is nothing less than the group of sons and daughters of God written in Heaven since before the foundation of the world, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, which would come to Earth in human flesh, through a fallen race, to make contact with Christ, and Christ would create the new man in and with those people, and thus make a New Temple of the human being.

The human being as an individual, notice how he is restored, how God creates, builds, a New Temple, for God to dwell within the human being: by believing in Christ as our Savior, washing our sins in the Blood of Christ and receiving His Holy Spirit; that is how we become a Temple for God as individuals. And because Christ, being in Holy Spirit within us, He is building that Temple until He brings it to perfection, until we are perfect, and we are in the image and likeness of Jesus Christ, and God dwells in us in all His fullness.

And now, that will be the manifestation of the sons and daughters of God, that will be the adoption, that is, the redemption of our body, which will be the transformation of our bodies (of those of us who are alive), and the resurrection of the dead in Christ.

Now notice how this New Temple will be filled with the glory of God in all His fullness. First we receive the first fruits of the Spirit; and in the Last Day, when the dead in Christ will resurrect in eternal bodies and we are changed, we will be with the fullness of the Spirit of God, that is, we will be with the double portion, and thus we will be as a Temple of the Spirit of God in all His fullness.

God will be dwelling in each one of you and in me also in all His fullness, and in each one of the elect of past ages. And in the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, as the New Temple, He will be dwelling in all His fullness in the Last Day, when the dead in Christ resurrect and we who are alive are transformed.

While that time arrives, God has been dwelling in the first fruits of the Spirit, in His spiritual Temple and in each one of us as the Temple of God, as individuals, that is, being the Spirit of Christ in the first fruits, which is the baptism of the Holy Spirit, where we receive the theophanic body of the sixth dimension. And with the fullness of the Holy Spirit we will receive the new physical and eternal body that He has promised for each one of you and for me also, and for all the saints of the past ages.

Now, we have seen what is the New Temple that would be built by the Messiah-Prince, the descendant of David, who is our Lord Jesus Christ.

And now we can see that it is in this end time where —in the Age of the Cornerstone— the most important construction of the spiritual Temple of Christ, of this New Temple, is carried out, which is the construction of the Most Holy Place, with human beings.

And that is why Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit has gone from North America to Latin America and the Caribbean, to build the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, to build the Age of the Cornerstone, with Latin American and Caribbean people. And that is why for the Latin American and Caribbean people the promise of Revelation, chapter 22, is converted into a reality in the Last Day; where it says: Revelation, chapter 22, verse 16:

“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches.”

And through that Angel Messenger Jesus Christ passes from North America to Latin America and the Caribbean, and brings a new dispensational Message for all the sons and daughters of God, to call them and gather them in the Age of the Cornerstone, and thus build with human beings the Age of the Cornerstone, which is the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of Christ, of this New Temple that Jesus Christ has been building.

This New Temple that He has been building is the creation of a new race; a new race that first receives the image of Christ, which is the theophanic body, and then will receive the physical likeness of Christ, visible physical likeness of Christ, of Jesus Christ, which is the eternal body that He will give to all of us; and we will all be in the image and likeness of our Lord Jesus Christ.

At present we are in the image of Jesus Christ by having the theophanic body, for we already have the image of Jesus Christ, which is the theophany; and in the Last Day, in this end time in which we live, we will also receive the physical likeness, the physical body like that of our Lord Jesus Christ: an eternal body, in which we will live for all eternity, an eternal and glorified body, the body that God had designed, had predestined, had ordained for each one of you and for me also, and for each member of this New Temple, which is His Church, which has been being built from age to age.

Now we can see this mystery of the New Temple; and we have seen that this New Temple that the Messiah would build is the New Temple which is called the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; that is the New Temple that would be built for the dwelling of God in Holy Spirit in all His fullness.

And where is Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit currently building this New Temple that He promised to build? He is in Latin America and the Caribbean, building the Most Holy Place of this New Temple, which is His Church, which has gone through different stages and is now in the stage of the Most Holy Place in Its construction, for God to dwell in all His fullness in the Most Holy Place of this spiritual Temple, of this New Temple.

And just as He entered into the tabernacle which Moses built and dedicated to God, and just as He entered into the temple which Solomon built and dedicated to God, and dwelt upon the mercy seat in the midst of the two golden cherubim, the mercy seat which was upon the ark of the covenant, and dwelt upon the mercy seat which was upon the ark of the covenant, in the most holy place, so God will dwell in all His fullness in the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, on the Ark of the Covenant, on the Mercy Seat, in the midst of the Two Golden Cherubim, which represent the ministries of the Two Olive Trees, the ministries of Moses and Elijah.

Now we can see why the Two Olive Trees of Revelation 11 have a powerful manifestation of God: It is the powerful manifestation of God in Holy Spirit in all His fullness in the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, over the Ark of the Covenant, over the Mercy Seat, in the midst of the two golden cherubim and in the midst of the two olive wood cherubim covered with gold that Solomon placed in the most holy place of the tabernacle or temple that King Solomon built.

And that is why Jesus Christ, just as He built the candlestick or candelabrum with its seven lamps and its burning wicks, which represent the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church with His angel messengers, notice how Christ materialized in His Church, in human beings, the candlestick or candelabrum, how He built it; and notice how He built the Holy Place of His spiritual Temple.

And now, for the end time, He builds the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, and builds the Ark of the Covenant, and builds the Mercy Seat, and builds the Two Golden Cherubim that are on the Mercy Seat, and also builds the Two Cherubim of olive wood covered with gold. All that is what Christ will be materializing in the Last Day in His Church in human flesh, in His New Temple, His Church, for God to dwell, Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit, in all His fullness, in this New Temple that He has been creating, that He has been building from stage to stage.

So the Hebrew people no longer need to have a literal temple there in Jerusalem, because Jesus Christ the Son of David, the Prince, who will build the Temple, has been building the New Temple with living stones.

Notice that the apostle Saint Peter speaks of this Temple, and shows us that it is a Temple built with human beings, with human beings who come to be part of this spiritual Temple. It says in First Peter, chapter 2, verse 1 and on, it says:

“Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings,

As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

To whom coming, (that is, to Christ) as unto a living stone…”

He is what? Living Stone, He is the Stone that the builders rejected, He is the Cornerstone.

“To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.”

Now, notice, just as Christ is a living Stone, that is, Christ is a perfect human Stone: The Cornerstone, the Cornerstone that the builders rejected, so also we are (what?) living stones. And we find that we are living stones for what? We are living stones to be built as a spiritual House; this spiritual House which is the New Temple, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Now, notice how Saint Paul continues saying here:

“Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.”

Now notice how God has placed in this New Temple, which is His Church, represented on Mount Zion or Mount of God, God has placed Christ, who is building this spiritual Temple, and of which He is the Cornerstone. He is the beginning of God’s Creation, and we are (what?) the continuation of God’s Creation.

And just as He is the Cornerstone, we are living stones also, in the Temple of God, in the New Temple that Christ has been building and that at this time is in the final phase or stage, the stage of the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple; so that when this part is finished, this spiritual Temple will be dedicated to God and God will dwell in all His fullness in this spiritual Temple.

And He will be manifested in this spiritual Temple in the manifestation promised for the Last Day, where great wonders will be carried out and where God will be speaking in all His fullness from His Temple and in His Temple, from the Most Holy Place, in the manifestation that He will have through His Angel Messenger.

And He will also dwell in each one of us in all His fullness, because we will all be transformed and we will have the new body; and there God will dwell in all His fullness, because we as individuals are also a New Temple that Christ has been building. And He builds us, notice, the holy place, He also builds the outer court, which is the body, and the most holy place is our soul. And when we have the physical and eternal body, this Temple as an individual will be complete, and God will dwell in it in all His fullness, He will dwell in each one of you and in me also.

And in the Mystical Body of Christ, which is His Church, this New Temple, He will also dwell in all His fullness: by means of His final manifestation through His Angel Messenger.

And that is why Christ will be veiled and revealed through His Angel Messenger in the Last Day, first in the first fruits of the Spirit, and then in the fullness of the Spirit, which will be being in the new body; to carry out through His Angel Messenger, Christ in Holy Spirit, certain things that can’t be carried out while His Angel Messenger is in the physical body of flesh without being transformed. But when he is transformed he will be adopted. And an adopted son is placed in his Father’s business in all his fullness; and the name of that son is as good as his Father’s.

We had the adoption of Jesus two thousand years ago on Mount Transfiguration; for the Last Day we will have the adoption of the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and also of the elect of God of the Last Day, and also of all the saints that have departed during the seven stages or ages of the gentile Church. In other words, the whole Mystical Body of Christ will be adopted; and this New Temple will be adopted. And this will be the Temple that will be there in Jerusalem with Christ, and where Christ will be, and from where Christ will be manifested in Holy Spirit through His manifestation relevant to the end time, the seventh millennium.

Now we can see how it will be that Jesus Christ will be manifested in Holy Spirit in this New Temple. This New Temple is composed (by what?) by human beings; and He will be manifested in you and in me also; He will be manifested in and through His Angel Messenger in the seventh millennium, in His spiritual Temple.

And the things that will happen when Jesus Christ is in all His fullness manifested in His Angel Messenger, will be like when Jesus Christ was here on Earth. And things that human beings never imagined that could happen, will happen in the manifestation of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit in all His fullness in His Angel Messenger, when the Angel of the Lord Jesus Christ is adopted.

He will speak the creative Word and miracles that never before in the history of the human race were seen will be seen; such as the creation of body parts that some people are missing, such as an arm or a leg or an eye or things like that. That was reflected, both in the ministry of Jesus Christ and in the ministry of our brother Branham, in the Third Pull, or in what he calls the Third Pull, which is the stage of the spoken Word, of that creative Word being spoken.

And it was represented, what will happen in the adoption of the Angel of Jesus Christ, was represented in those manifestations of the Third Pull, where great miracles were carried out, such as the creation of squirrels on different occasions: that is a miracle never seen in the history of the human race. But when Christ commanded His disciples to cast the net to the right: there were no fish, but Christ created fish and Peter caught them.11

And now, notice how for the end time, at the time for the dedication of the New Temple for the dwelling of God in Holy Spirit in all His fullness, great things will happen.

We find that the five times that the forerunner of the Second Coming of Christ saw the mighty hand of God manifested, shows what will be the manifestation of Jesus Christ in Holy Spirit in all His fullness through His Angel Messenger when he is adopted. That will be for that occasion.

That is why in our time we are in the stage of the spoken Word, to bring the divine revelation of our time, for the elect of God to be called and gathered, and to be prepared to be transformed, and thus be adopted in the Kingdom of God, and for God to dwell in us in all His fullness. And so this New Temple is dedicated to God, and God to dwell in this New Temple, which is His Church, to dwell in all His fullness; and this Temple will be adopted for the glorious Millennial Kingdom and for all eternity.

That is why in Revelation, chapter 21, we find that John saw here the Temple, the Tabernacle of God. It says: Revelation, chapter 21, verse 1 and on, it says:

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”

Here we can see this Temple, this Tabernacle of God, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; this is the Tabernacle of God with men.

Now, we can see this Temple of God, in which God will dwell in all His fullness for the Millennium and for all eternity.

Before the Hebrew people had a temple, there was no temple of stones or wood or skins, but the temple was the human being. God created Adam as a temple for God; and God will restore His Temple. And that is the New Temple of God, which is His Church, which is composed of the redeemed of Jesus Christ, who have their names written in Heaven, in the Lamb’s Book of Life, since before the foundation of the world.

We have seen “THE NEW TEMPLE,” which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; we have seen how that New Temple has been created, built.

And who belongs to this New Temple in the Last Day? We who live in this end time.

There are many people in Latin America and the Caribbean who belong to this New Temple and don’t know it; and that is why the Message of God comes for this end time calling and gathering His elect, to place them in this New Temple of God, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, and to place them in the most important part of this Temple, which is the Most Holy Place of the spiritual Temple of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Where are God’s elect being placed in the Temple of God? In the Most Holy Place of this Temple. And where is the Age of the Most Holy Place, the Age of the Cornerstone, being fulfilled in this Last Day in the Temple of God? It is being fulfilled in Latin America and the Caribbean.

That is the great blessing that God has given to Latin America and the Caribbean. God’s blessing is upon Latin America and the Caribbean, although some people have not yet understood it; but as God is making known His Program for this end time, thousands of people are getting to know God’s Program relevant to this time for Latin America and the Caribbean, and they are receiving the blessing that God has for Latin American and Caribbean people in this Last Day.

Latin America and the Caribbean have the opportunity to enter and to enter the promised land of the glorious Millennial Kingdom of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ.

And I am always praying for Latin America and the Caribbean, and all of you also, that the mercy of God may be fully extended over Latin America and the Caribbean, and for Latin America and the Caribbean with its inhabitants to enter the glorious Millennial Kingdom of our beloved Lord Jesus Christ, when that Kingdom begins after the great tribulation.

To enter the Millennial Kingdom after the great tribulation, it is necessary to enter the Program of God relevant to this end time, in the Age of the Cornerstone. And in Latin America and the Caribbean God is fulfilling the Age of the Cornerstone, He is creating the Age of the Cornerstone, He is creating the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple with Latin American and Caribbean people.

It has been a great privilege for me to be with you on this occasion, giving testimony of the New Temple that would be built, that would be created by God, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The psalmist said that he wished, he longed, to be in the Outer Courts of the House of God12; but now, look, those of the past ages, of the seven ages, were further inside, they were in the Holy Place of the House of God, of the Temple of God. And we at this time, in Latin America and the Caribbean, we are in the Most Holy Place of the House of God; that is the most important place of the House of God, of the New Temple, which is the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ; and that is the place where He has placed us in this New Temple that He has been building, and that at this time He is building the most important part with Latin American and Caribbean people.

May the blessings of Jesus Christ, the Angel of the Covenant, pertaining to the Most Holy Place of His spiritual Temple, be upon each one of you and upon me also, and call those who are yet to come, who have their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life, and thus the construction of the spiritual Temple of Christ is completed, and we are all transformed and the dead in Christ resurrected, and then we go to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven. In the Eternal Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen and amen.

May God continue to bless you all, may God keep you. And I will be here with you again, at 3:00 in the afternoon we will be back, and already at 3:30 I will be with you to continue seeing the Divine Program relevant to our time, and we will be seeing: “THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,” the rapture of the Church, in other words, the catching away of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ, in other words, the catching away of this New Temple that Christ has been building. In the afternoon our topic will be: “THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH.”

So pray for God to speak to us in the afternoon and let us understand the whole mystery of the rapture or catching away of the Church, that is, of this Temple of which we have spoken on this occasion.

May God continue to bless you all, may God keep you; and I leave again with us Felix Caro, director of the hymns, to continue and finish this activity this morning, and have a break, and then return to this place.

May God bless you and keep you all.

“THE NEW TEMPLE.”
